What does is feel like when it is well with your soul? The question was asked as Olivia was sleeping in my arms. Sleep. That is something that I feel like I need more of these days. Olivia is usually a pretty good sleeper, but this week she must have been going through a growth spurt because she has been up a lot at night to nurse. And that has made me tired. The other day I was on a call with a co-worker and when we finished she asked to speak to someone else. So, I put the phone on hold, but never told the other person to pick up the phone. Imagine my surprise when she came out of her office, but the phone was still on hold! Then later that day, I drove right past the exit (and right into the no exit zone) I needed to get off to get the littles from daycare. When I am tired I don’t think straight. I feel weak, and like in a moment I will stumble… or drive right past the exit I am supposed to get off.
